2019 National Convention Registration & Housing Information

TENTATIVE, SUBJECT TO CHANGE

This year, the DSA National Convention will be held from August 2nd-4th at the Westin Peachtree Plaza (hotel & conference center), in Downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

DSA’s National Political Committee chose this venue for a variety of reasons but most importantly, because of our commitment as an organization to workers and organized labor. The Westin Peachtree is a unionized hotel and the workers are members of Unite Here, Local 23.

We anticipate that Early Bird Registration for the Convention will on or about June 1st and close at the end of the month.

Because the Peachtree Plaza is a hotel and a unionized venue, the rates for registration and housing are higher than the 2017 National Convention. Rooms at the hotel can be reserved for a single person (typically a delegate traveling with their family), two people (a double), or up to four people (a quad).

We hope chapters will fundraise to support their delegates to the Convention so that individual members are not shouldering these costs alone. We have established subsidized rates to reduce the costs overall for members and chapters. We will also have Solidarity Funds available for members to cover any remaining costs to ensure that every delegate can attend the Convention and stay in the hotel, regardless of finances.

For more information on the costs associated with attending the Convention, check out the registration and housing rates below.

Please note that the standard rates reflect the true material cost per person for attending the Convention, while all other rates are subsidized by DSA nationally.
